"They combine the agility and grace of gymnasts with the showmanship of Cirque du Soleil performers."- The Washington Post
For more than 1,000 years, the Shaolin Monastery in China's Henan Province has been the heart and soul of spiritual and Shaolin Chuan (Kung-Fu) practices. Perfecting the art of Wushu exercises, hand-to-hand and weapons combat, the Shaolin warriors maintain a daily strenuous schedule of training for the monks both young and old. On their 2007 tour and premier visit to the Fine Arts Center, they will showcase their versatile kicks, stunning flying swords, compact moves, and powerful martial arts prowess. This unique performance is a prime example of Kung Fu at it's peak of artistic expression!
